Answered By: 
The Mayor

Please find attached a spreadsheet containing gun crime offences broken down as requested. Gun crime is at its lowest level since I became Mayor and has fallen by almost 14% in the last year alone.

Gun crime is a key priority for both the Metropolitan Police Service and myself, and in June I launched the London Crime Reduction Board's Strategic Ambitions for London: Gangs and Serious Youth Violence. This continues our focus on prevention, intervention and enforcement.
